First semester students in the International Economic Relations program are encouraged to take:
- An economics course.
When selecting an economics course, please note that all IER students must complete SIS-616: International Economics. SIS-616: Int’l Economics requires prior experience with micro- and macroeconomics. Students must either pass the SIS Economics Placement Exam or complete ECON-603: Intro to Economics Theory prior to taking SIS-616: Int’l Economics. Visit the SIS Graduate Advising website for more information regarding the SIS Economics Placement Exam.
2. One of the “Choose Two” IER-related courses for the Spring 2019 semester. Please find the approved “Choose Two” courses for the spring semester on the IER EdSpace.
3. One research and professional methods course. Students with a background in statistics are encouraged to take ECON-623: Applied Econometrics I. (Please note, SIS students must have permission from the IER program director before they will be allowed to enroll.) Please see the IER program worksheet for a list of approved research and professional methods courses.
Please review the schedule of classes for course prerequisites. If a course has a prerequisite, please contact your academic advisor to determine how it can be waived.
Mike Rosenberger is the academic advisor for the IER program.
